I have just installed F 12 - clean install- but when I go to get updates today (Dec 2nd) no updates appear.
I have done yum clean and yum makecache but still no updates available in software updates

New F20 user here. Used F19 for a week and loved it, came over from Ubuntu (started getting less and less happy with it, more and more buggy), and overall having a great experience. Now with F19 I used the Software updates app to check for and install updates, but in F20 that app is gone and I'm wondering how can I check for updates in the new version of Fedora?
I use Ubuntu exclusively for my job, especially for the fact that everything works and I get the most out of my processor and memory, but you are killing me with updates! I just lost a very good opportunity from a client that installed Ubuntu but got tired of all the updates. I really can't argue the fact. In a matter of a day I had two software updates.
I do not want to install updates that I receive for factory installed apps that I don't use so that I can save storage space. However, the updates continue to appear in my Updates Notification List. Is there a way to remove these unwanted updates and notifications?
Every time after I run Software Updates, and have installed all the updates, the Software Updates Manager will show "The last check for updates was over a week ago. Please click Check for Updates to check."
But the last update check was just minutes ago. How can I fix that?
I checked the package history, and under Today there's all the updates I've installed minutes age. It seems normal.
I have been trying out F18 for the last few days. After an issue downloading updates after the first install to hard drive which was resolved, things seemed to be running OK. However after downloading updates today I restarted and after the boot screen I got a very long list of debug info and the process stops .
I'm a bit afraid of breaking my machine because I've heard some people have had that problem after updating. How safe is it to just let update manager install all available updates? I currently have 300+ updates waiting and I've just been going through them and installing the ones that I know what they do.
